There's a Cow in the Cabbage Patch is a delightful children's board book from England. It's a collaboration between Clare Beaton, known for her handcrafted illustrations and Stella Blackstone.

The cow and a number of other farm animals have gotten loose and are making nuisances of themselves. Can the two farmers round up the animals before they cause too much trouble?

Stella Blackstone's rhymes are cute and humorous but it's Beaton's felt, bead and button quilt collages that make the book extra special. Beaton describes herself as a "tremendous hoarder and collector of everything", especially fabrics, just in case she'll need something for her artwork. Her enthusiasm shows in her whimsical pieces.

There's a Cow in the Cabbage Patch is the second book by Blackstone and Beaton that I've enjoyed with Sean and Harriet. If you enjoy this one you should check out Secret Seahorse.
